Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 50 g Butter
  • 1 - Chantilly Cream
    to serve
  • 16 - Cloves
  • 150 g Dark Muscovado Sugar
  • 100 g Dark Muscovado Sugar
  • 200 ml Double Cream
  • 1 tsp Mixed Spice
    ground black pepper, ground ginger and freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 - SuperValu Pineapple
    whole, peeled and eyes removed
  • 25 ml White Rum
For The Caramel Rum
  • 100 g Butter

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.
  2. Stud the pineapple with the cloves. Put the sugar on a
    plate, then roll the pineapple in the sugar until it’s coated
    all over.

  3. Put the pineapple in a large roasting tin. Dot it with pieces
    of the butter and roast in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes,
    basting every 8 to 10 minutes, until sticky and golden.

  4. Meanwhile, to make the caramel rum sauce, put the butter and sugar in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the cream, then return to the heat and allow to reduce for a couple of minutes, until the sauce is thick and creamy. Remove from the heat, then stir in the rum.

  5. When the pineapple is done, remove it from the tin and
    allow to cool slightly. When it’s cool enough to handle,
    cut the pineapple into quarters, remove the core and cut
    into slices. Serve with the caramel rum sauce and Chantilly cream on the side.
